'Folly Fun at the SunLove Beach Cottage'!

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bed, 2 bath cottage. Walk everywhere!!!!

Enjoy a simple, but comfortable, vintage Folly cottage. This original cottage, built in 1945, is one of the few left on Folly Beach. Back in the day locals would hand build their family camp on Folly Beach and enjoy the beauty of this barrier island - the beach, birds and breezes. Fishing, crabbing, shrimping and oystering were a way of life....... and still is. This wonderful low country life style is depicted in the art in the cottage.

Park your car and break out the flip-flops!! SunLove is a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to Center Street, which is packed with great restaurants, bars, and shopping. All things fun - the River Park, fishing pier, Bert's grocery, coffee shop and brewery are a short walk away. Yet, SunLove is far enough from the crowd to enjoy some down time. Grab a book and a beverage and enjoy one of the porches or the back patio. When you get your energy back up you can grill that fish you caught or cook up a mess of Frogmore Stew. No, no frogs are involved, mostly shrimp..I'll leave the recipe for you!

The house is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath with the bedrooms upstairs.

**Please note - the stairs are steep and narrow and may not be applicable for small children, better for older children age 6 and above based on parents discretion**

There is an adjacent Studio to the Cottage that is reserved for the owner including 2 parking spaces to the far left of the Cottage. Our renters privacy is assured.

Bring your boat, your dog and your flip flops. Come enjoy a wonderful vacation in this vintage cottage which represents the joy, beauty and bounty of the low country.

Keywords: Original Vintage Folly Beach Cottage. Fenced yard for dog. Parking for boat. 5 minute walk to beach, shopping, restaurants.

About Jackie Flynt, owner

I Love the mysterious beauty and charm of the Charleston area. The moss laden oaks;

egrets and herons fishing when the tide is out; dolphins jumping in the sparkling water; pelicans and gulls flying overhead; the dynamic tidal ebb and flow of the creeks and rivers.

The people here are kind and humble; courteous and respectful. We want you to go first. We have soul and soul food! From red rice to local farm fresh veggies and to the best seafood, ever! You won't leave here hungry, that's for sure.

Why Jackie Flynt, owner chose Charleston Area

Want to park your car and walk everywhere? This is it. Want to vacation with your beloved pet and know they have a shady, fenced yard to play in? This is it. This older home is grandfathered and does not have to meet FEMA elevation levels. Because the back porch and deck are ground level, you can grill or read while your pet is safely fenced next to you.

What makes this house unique

Walk everywhere! Bring your dog! Bring your boat! Original vintage Folly island cottage. Fenced shady yard for pets.

Wonderful Folly Beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Sun Love Beach Cottage was perfect for our family of four and our small furry friend. Close to the beach, close to restaurants and town and close to the river. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Our furry friend had a ample grass yard to play when not exploring. Sun Love Beach Cottage was clean and had beach character. Our favorite place was the screened in back porch where we ate our meals and relaxed. We are thankful for the owner's visit and learning some Folly Beach history. Charleston is close by for history, some more fun and good food. Thank you for the memorable spring break vacation!

Lovely Beach home with good accommodations for 6 plus dog

  • 4 of 5

We had 2 families, two moms with our combined 4 children: 3 older teens and one 8 year old. The house suited us well. We brought our dog too, and there was sufficient room for all of us. The kitchen was nicely equipped with nice small appliances, gas stove, quality cookware. Two things I would have liked was a non-stick pan for cooking eggs and a pancake griddle for cooking a group breakfast.

Unfortunately, the weather was quite cold so we were not able to enjoy the terrific outdoor space on the back screened porch or the front porch. Despite being indoors a lot, we were pretty comfortable. The rooms appear a bit larger than the pictures. The living room sofa is a bit tired, but for our kids, it was fine. Plenty of seating for our group in both the kitchen and dining room for meals. The beds were pretty comfortable, though I found the foam top on the master bed to be a bit too soft for me. The bedrooms were roomy with a dresser in each. There is a large hanging closet in the master that we shared. There is also hanging space in the laundry room, though you may want to bring extra hangers if you have to hang a lot of items. Linens provided were enough, but just enough. You may want to bring extra beach towels, as there was one beach, one bath towel per person.

The fenced yard was great for our dog - it was clean and nicely fenced. We were just a short walk to the beach, the town, and we were able to walk and bike in the neighborhood and on the beach. Additionally, we went into Charleston several times for sight-seeing, dinner, shopping. It was a short ride away, off peak traffic, about 20-25 minutes. Folly Beach is quaint with lots of options for eating, souvenir shopping. We stopped in a fresh-caught seafood store on Folly Rd. It was delicious. Everywhere we went, we were greeted with good service, good food, reasonable prices.

I love this little house, the neighborhood, Charleston, the beach. There was something for everyone in our group. A really great vacation for all of us! Thanks so much to Donna and Jacqueline for making ours a memorable vacation!! I hope to return again some day.

We enjoyed the week. Close to shopping and restaurants short drive to Charleston. Good for families. Older home.

Positives: nice location, just a few blocks to the beach walking distance, quiet neighborhood, updated appliances, 3 decent sized bedrooms, very nice owner, backyard, screened in porches, parking, comfortable beds, nice flat screen TVs in bedrooms and living room.

Suggestions: bathrooms need upgrades especially upstairs

Beautiful week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at sunlove! Usually we are ready to go home by the end of vacation, but I'm now homesick for Folly! Jackie and Donna made the booking process so easy and were very accommodating. The house has so much charm and was equipped with everything we could have needed. We all felt so at home. I already miss relaxing on the screened in porch! All bedrooms were much more spacious than they appeared in the pictures. The stairs were steep as mentioned in the description. Our dog loved exploring around the large fenced in yard as well. The home has a perfect location as it is a 5 minute walk to the beach or shops and restaurants, and a 20 minute drive to downtown Charleston. If you are staying in the Charleston area, make it a priority to go watch the sunset somewhere different every night. The sunsets here are like no other, and I always look forward to them the most when I go. This was our third trip to Folly and it never disappoints. The locals make you feel at home and the atmosphere is so relaxed and laid back. I already can't wait for our next trip! Thank you, Jackie for sharing your sweet home with us and allowing us to make great lifelong memories!

Located between the river and the beach. 5 minute walk to both. 5 minute walk to Center street, which is packed with restaurants, bars and shopping. The public boat ramp and fishing pier are a few short blocks away. Walking distance to several Folly parks including the River Park, Pirate park, and Bark Park for dogs. Short drive to beautiful James Island county park.
